Strengthening Student Resumes

Our college prep school is dedicated to securing the success of students both now and in the future. Our academic program reflects that commitment.

The courses strive for excellence in learning through critical thinking and problem-solving. These are qualities that are paramount to success in higher education. 

With the addition of AP courses on their resumes, students can demonstrate their commitment to education and their willingness to take on new challenges.

Get a Head Start on College at Our Private Academy

Not only do AP courses strengthen college resumes; they are also an opportunity for students to get a head start on their degrees. Most universities offer college credit for AP exam scores. This means that students are able to fulfill their graduation requirements early or skip required introductory courses in their first year of college. By dedicating their time and skills to AP courses during high school, students at R-MA can save on college tuition down the line. Additionally, AP coursework factors into scholarships decisions for many colleges and universities. With a transcript to impress, graduates of our private academy can open doors to the opportunities of tomorrow.
